Abstract:

The long-term goal of this project is to improve our understanding of 1 the structure, evolution, and dynamics of the interaction of extratropical frontscyclones with the coastal orography of the western U.S., 2 air-sea interactions associated with coastal fronts and rapidly deepening cyclones along the East Coast, and 3 the ability of mesoscale models to simulate coastal phenomena at high resolution.
